What we do matters.
At GameChanger, we love amateur sports. It's why we make software to help teams stay more informed, efficient, and connected. Our mobile apps and website provide scorekeeping, stats, live play-by-play, and recap stories for tens of thousands of baseball and softball teams and our product impacts the daily lives of our customers and their teams, families, and communities. We distrust complexity.
From a flat organizational structure, to a focus on quality over quantity, to a conveniently located office space, we strive to eliminate complexity from our daily routine. It helps us accomplish our mission of changing the way amateur sports teams collect, manage, and share real-time information. It's also why we monitor everything, deploy continuously (with automated unit, functional, and smoke tests), and perform Github-integrated code reviews. Come for the code, stay for the team.
There are many exciting challenges posed by creating sleek, intuitive, easy-to-use interfaces, while scaling to support the live scoring and streaming of thousands of simultaneous games, yet still keeping up-to-date with the latest tools and technologies. But the best thing about working at GameChanger is collaborating with bright, fun, dedicated, and supportive teammates to develop a product that customers love and need. Work isn't everything.
We work hard, but we have lives outside of work and few rules. We also offer health benefits, a 401k plan, stock options, unlimited vacation, flexible work hours, two beer fridges, and weekly classes taught by GameChanger employees on a wide range of topics such as design principles, angel and VC funding, and fencing ( Check it out! ).
